By Steve Bittenbender MOREHEAD, Ky. (Reuters) - A county clerk's office in rural Kentucky issued a marriage license to a gay couple on Friday morning after defying a federal judge's orders for months. While Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was jailed on Thursday for refusing to follow the orders of U.S. District Judge David Bunning, her deputies processed a license for James Yates and William Smith, who had previously been denied one five times, after the clerk's office doors opened on Friday. The issuance of the license followed months of legal wrangling between Davis and the courts that drew global attention and protests from supporters and opponents of gay marriage.
